It looks as though you want to use xsl:copy-of (which makes a deep
copy of whatever nodes you select, including elements) rather than
xsl:value-of (which gives the string value of a node, and doesn't
retain any structure). Try:

<xsl:template match="/">
                        <xsl:copy-of select="Test/node()" />

You need Test/node() rather than just Test because if you copied the
Test element, you'd get the Test element itself as well as its
descendants. With Test/node() you get a copy of the content of the
Test element without the Test element itself.

I hope that helps,
